The Incredible Cowardice of the Mad King Stephen Harper
He is already the best protected Prime Minister in Canadian history. Wherever he goes he is surrounded by an army of RCMP bodyguards.
His motorcade of sinister black vehicles is as big or bigger than Obama's secret service convoys.
No ordinary Canadians can get anywhere near him. Only Con supporters who have been vetted by his office.
But even that isn't enough to reassure our cowardly mad king.
Now he's recruiting former soldiers to provide him with even more security.
The Conservatives are using former members of the Canadian military to act as security guards at their election campaign events, in addition to the RCMP officers who are assigned to the prime minister's personal detail.
The former Canadian Armed Forces soldiers, who are travelling with members of the media on the Conservative campaign bus, wear suits and earpieces much like the Mounties assigned to protect Stephen Harper.
Not to protect Great Leader his flunkies claim, but to shield his ears from the sounds of protest...
But then what do we expect from a man who is such a control freak or so paranoid he would muzzle his own supporters and his own candidates?
Conservatives running in the federal election have been advised not to attend all-candidates’ meetings or speak to reporters during the campaign, a party source says. A Conservative insider said Wednesday that most of Stephen Harper’s flag-bearers have “been told no debates and no media.”
And a man who would use fear against his own people could not be more cowardly.
So I can only imagine how he must have reacted to this new poll.
The New Democratic Party has the backing of an unprecedented 40 per cent of Canadians, a level of support that could secure Thomas Mulcair a majority in the House of Commons, a new poll has found.
The Forum Research poll for the Toronto Star projects the NDP with enough support to win 174 seats in the Oct. 19 election. Justin Trudeau’s Liberals now sit in second place with 30 per cent support, while Stephen Harper’s Conservatives are losing support and have the backing of just 23 per cent of the 1,440 Canadians surveyed.
Now it is just another poll, and there will be many more before this campaign is over.
But this other poll released today also shows the Cons are now in last place.
An Ipsos poll conducted exclusively for Global News and published Thursday shows the NDP holding a small lead nationally with 33 per cent of respondents favouring Mulcair’s party. The Liberals are three points back with 30 per cent, and the Conservatives trail the three main parties at 29 per cent.
And it does help explain why the Harperite zombies are now so desperate they are calling up the dead.
A Conservative candidate in Quebec says she is sorry after her campaign telephoned the father of a local murder victim to seek his daughter’s support -- not once but twice.
All over the place.
Which is really scary.
And the irony is that all this weirdness could come back to haunt Harper. Make it look like there's something not quite right about him.
Or that he's got something to hide...
So rather than help him, the mad king's cowardice and paranoia
Could make him even less popular.
And in the end might help bury him...
There are now 53 days to go before the most important election in Canadian history.
One that will determine whether this country lives or dies.
Hold your ballot in one hand, and a shovel in the other...
